Londono: upped to president, western & northern Europe

Fox International Channels (FIC) has unveiled a new structure for its management team for Europe and Africa.

Under the leadership of Jesús Perezagua, president of FIC Europe and Africa, the new structure groups the Fox business into four entities, and sees the appointment of four, newly promoted executive vice-presidents.

Diego Londono, who also serves as chief operating officer for Europe and Africa, will assume the role of president of western and northern Europe, with oversight of the UK, Italy, Germany and the Nordic region.

Carlos Ortega, who for the past four years served as general manager of central Europe, becomes executive vice-president of central and eastern Europe, charged with the management of central European countries as well as Russia, the Balkan countries, Baltic Republics and Eurasia.

Adam Theiler, who has served as general manager of several European FIC markets, becomes EVP of southern Europe and Africa, covering Iberia, Turkey, Greece and Africa.

Finally, Adrian Herzkovich, who has served as general manager of FIC Argentina and most recently of FIC Netherlands, takes on the role of EVP Benelux and France.

The European executive team also includes existing heads, Georgina Twiss, SVP affiliate distribution (distribution direction); Deborah Armstrong, EVP advertising sales (commercial direction); and Sergio Falcón, SVP digital media.

“FIC has grown incredibly fast and has become a global leader in entertainment. We hold an enviable position in Europe and Africa, but at the same time recognise that in order to grow our business, we need to adjust to meet the demands of an increasingly complex business and organization”, said Perezagua. “Diego, Carlos, Adam and Adrian have each tirelessly contributed to FIC’s exponential growth. Their extensive track record, business acumen and dedication make them the perfect set of senior managers to take us to the next level.”
